Lopamudra Banerjee is a writer, poet , translator and she is the author of “Thwarted Escape ” and Co-editor of “Defiant Dreams “- the best selling anthology.
This poetic anthology consists of different melancholy of poems, including learning to fall, the woman unwrapped, the man and the woman, the voyage within, death, ashes and the darkness. The setting of this anthology has been put so meticulously. The smoothing sublimity sliced through my skin .
LET THE NIGHT SING
The fangs of the night unfold,
Faint footsteps resound,
Silvery beams of moonlight
The dark woods,
Dense canopy of trees,
The pitch black,
Skin slicing through
Let the moon stay,
Let us make love.
For me, who is in love with the poetry of the book, “Let the night sing ” is a worth read. Thank you Lopa Mam for gifting us a wonderful poetic anthology.
